Nova Scotians are often encouraged to purchase local food products instead of imports, to benefit the economy and the community.
But not everyone endorses this view. Food policy expert Pierre Desrochers [pronounced DAY – Raw – Shay] argues that we should instead embrace a 10,000-mile diet, to increase productivity, lower costs and provide affordable food to more people.
The Atlantic Institute for Market Studies provides a platform for multiple policy views in its student outreach program, AIMS on Campus. We will host Professor Desrochers at Acadia University on the afternoon of March 31st. To register, please e-mail A-I-M-S at A-I-M-S dot C-A. Visit our website for more information. Admission is free.
